Examining the world at large through the eyes of its youngest participants, "Social Studies Makes Me Sleepy" helps the reader relive history through the fresh eyes of children, the often forgotten players on the world stage. "Social Studies Makes Me Sleepy" is guaranteed to wake you up. It will wake up children and young adults looking at the world at large for the first time. It will also refresh the older reader who remembers but can't fully recall the events that shaped American history. This historical fantasy shares with thereader the excitement of children participating in the Children's March inBirmingham, the disappointment of a young girl hurled back in time to a Japanese internment camp during World War II, the wonder of polio victims basking in the warmth of their President in Warm Springs. Experience the thrill and terror of processing at Ellis Island and the magic of candy falling from the sky in post-war Berlin.Everyone loves a good story. History is not just a school subject. The "story" imbedded in that word needs to be told. "Social Studies Makes Me Sleepy" starts there and then the children can write the rest.
